Elena Sakharnaya

I was born in Moscow in 1969 and graduated from the Moscow International Design School. I have been creating art for the last 15 years, working with various materials and in different manners.

My favourite technique currently is collage. I particularly have come to appreciate traditional handcrafted Venetian masks as a basis.
I feel that the sense of mystery they create and their exquisite shape help make them an ideal platform for my compositions.

I see my works as theatrical performances, where participants play with ideas and try to solve the mysteries of life.
